Ambassador at Work – Faith, Vocation, and Apologetics

By Mikel Del Rosario How do people see you at work? I’ve been thinking about the relationship of your vocational work to spiritual conversations, especially as I reflect on collaborative events I’ve participated in over years, like the National Faith and Work Association Meeting. And here’s the thing: Our apologetic arguments aren’t heard in a vacuum. They’re wrapped […]

Clearing Up Cosmos: Fact and Fiction in Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Landmark Series

It took him thirty years “to climb out of the atheist hole.” Sadly, Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey, the 2014 series brought to you by Neil deGrasse Tyson, Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane, and […]

The Idea That Faith is Caught and Not Taught is False…and It’s Hurting the Next Generation

By Natasha Crain As Christians, we have all kinds of pithy sayings that make their way through churches and establish themselves as generally accepted truths. Some end up on bumper stickers, some on wall decals, and some just get repeated so many times that people think they’re actually in the Bible. There’s a popular one […]

What is Truth? A Description of the Nature of Truth in the Gospel of John

By Brian Chilton   “What is truth?’ said Pilate” (John 18:38). This classic question was asked by Pilate to Jesus during Jesus’s trial. This question does not resonate with Pilate only. In fact, people throughout generations have asked the same. What is truth? What is the nature of truth? Can truth be known? While Jesus […]

La participación del creyente en el proceso político, parte I

Por David L. Rogers Un libro, una Ilustración de los Gobiernos Los libros, que tanto nos enriquecen la vida, son una invención del siglo XVI.

Conversations with Jehovah’s Witnesses

By J. Brian Huffling “There are some Jehovah’s Witnesses in the neighborhood if you want to talk them,” my wife said. I was excited. I have had numerous and long-standing discussions with Mormons, but never anything meaningful with Jehovah’s Witnesses. After a while, they finally came to my door. While I couldn’t talk to them […]

Apologetics as Conversation

By Mikel Del Rosario Hey, Can We Talk? Seeing apologetics as a conversational ministry There’s an Indian proverb that says, “You don’t cut off a man’s nose and give him a rose to smell.” I first heard this from Ramesh Richards, who applies this idea to apologetics. He says that sometimes, in the midst of […]

Conceptualizando las dos naturalezas de Jesús

Por Max Andrews Predicación reduplicada es el medio para la comprensión de la relación entre las naturalezas de Jesucristo. Cuando la Escritura atribuye cualidades humanas a Jesús deben fundamentarse a su naturaleza humana. Del mismo modo, cuando la Escritura atribuye cualidades divinas a Jesús deben fundamentarse a su naturaleza divina. Con esta idea, podríamos ser […]

By Terrell Clemmons Jon Headley has a confession to make. “I’m a 30-year-old man, but until a few years ago, I had no real understanding of the theory of evolution.” “Ah,” the ex-Christian continues after relieving himself of this confessional burden, “it feels good to get that off my chest.” And with that, the musician […]

Correcting four myths about the history of the Crusades

By Wintery Knight   Here is an interesting article from the Intercollegiate Studies Institute. Intro: The verdict seems unanimous. From presidential speeches to role-playing games, the crusades are depicted as a deplorably violent episode in which thuggish Westerners trundled off, unprovoked, to murder and pillage peace-loving, sophisticated Muslims, laying down patterns of outrageous oppression that […]
